Letter to the President Regarding NCLB and Charter Schools

Dear President Obama,

Please read this article by Diane Ravitch from the Washington Post, entitled "Why I Changed My Mind About School Reform". Ms. Ravitch is absolutely correct in her opinion.

My favorite quote from the article,
"They* also fail to recognize that the best predictor of low academic performance is poverty—not bad teachers."
Please read the article Mr. President.

* Refers to the Obama administration, following in the footsteps of NCLB.
